Dereham Town return to action with two home games over Easter.
Mid-table Mildenhall visit Aldiss Park on Saturday and bottom-four Harwich & Parkeston follow on Monday (both 3pm) as the Magpies renew their efforts for a top- three finish in the Ridgeons Premier.
The Magpies had no weekend game. There was disappointment when the scheduled match against Woodbridge was postponed the previous week but they still staged the first ever pre-match sponsors meal at the club. It raised a good sum of money for the club's coffers. Margaret Barnes produced an excellent meal and all of the staff gave their services free.
It also gave some of the supporters a chance to quiz the chairman and manager on the club's plans for the future and reflect on the season so far.

Captain Graham Barrett, asked how good he felt the current squad was, said: 'Having played for Dereham for over 10 years at senior level I feel that the current squad we have is the best that we have seen. With players prepared to sit on the bench or play in the reserves whilst waiting for their chance, along with the young players coming through, it looks an exciting future.'

He was quick to praise both Rob Taylor and current boss Matty Henman. He said after Taylor gave Dereham a most successful period and laid the foundations, Matty Henman, with his knowledge and understanding of the game along with his personality has been able to take the Magpies on even further.
